In this session, we’ll be reviewing oil analysis for determining whether or not new oil/grease is in proper condition, and appropriate analysis to be done on an ongoing basis to assure that the lubricants in use are in proper condition.

You will learn how to calculate the economic impact of ignoring oil analysis data in a simple-to-understand format. We also explore several case studies to show what a true problem-to-failure curve looks like when the data is ignored.

With regular oil analysis to ensure oil quality and cleanliness, the drain intervals for all four air compressors were extended up to eight times the OEM-recommended interval of 8,000 hours. Total cost savings – on oil alone – was $71,000. Environmental impact was reduced as well, with 1,035 fewer litres (273 fewer gallons) of waste oil. Fewer oil changes also meant less downtime, maintenance and labor. The overall effect for the company was significant cost savings on oil, maintenance time and disposal.

There are several different technologies that can be used, alone or in combination, to monitor the condition of your machinery from a predictive maintenance (PdM) perspective. The criticality of the machine affects the number of such inspection-type technologies that are applied to a given failure mode. The more critical the machine and the more critical the failure mode, the more redundancy you will want in the inspections.
